Solemates | Gia And James


When we arrived to James’ Greenpoint apartment, Gia and James were the personification of yin and yang– couple-wise and style-wise. In hopes of the adorable-ness rubbing off into our own romantic lives, we talked to the two young creatives about how they met, what they love about each other, and more. Get ready to “ooh” and “aww.”

Gia drives me crazy when _________ 
James: (She) doesn’t wake up early enough.

Love is _________ 
James: When you hit a point when you realize you care about someone else just as much, or more, as yourself. It’s like a very sincere selflessness and I think it just kind of happens.
